Jimmy Carter declared Grandparents Day a national holiday in 1978. Grandparents Day is the first Sunday after Labor Day. Read the history on Grandparents.com. There is a whole page of info all about it!
What impact have grandparents had on you?
If you are a grandparent, what impact have you made on the younger generations?
My first book Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! is all about making an impact – whether you know it or not! It makes a perfect Grandparents Day present for a grandpa who has a grandson. (Granddaughter will be born at the end of December 2009 – so then we’ll create a granddaughter book, too!)
